Availability: In stock
A blend of Merlot, Syrah, Tempranillo and Cabernet Franc, Petit Caus Negre is the entry-level red wine of Can Ràfols dels Caus.
Made from grapes coming from three little plots: Sinia, Plana Gran and Avellaner, this Spanish red wine showcases the terroir characteristics of Massís del Garraf, a subzone of DO Penedès.
Each plot was separately harvested and vinified. The grapes were fermented using indigenous yeasts with frequent punch-downs of the solid cap of grape skins to extract colour and aromas.
After that, Petit Caus Negre 2021 was transferred into a bigger tank, where the blend was aged for some months, and finally bottled after a gentle filtration.
This yummy organic red wine is great for a relaxed rendez-vous with friends.
The red wine Petit Caus Negre is medium ruby with a garnet rim.
Somewhat shy at the beginning, this blend of Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Tempranillo soon exhibits some lively notes of wild berries, some spicy notions and dim mineral undertones.
Vivid and expressive, this wine from Can Ràfols dels Caus is medium-bodied, with clean notes of black fruit, black olives, undergrowth and balsam. Mild tannins, good acidity and a medium, crisp finish which cleanses the palate.
